plane with one hundred fifty seven people on board crashes minutes. there are no survivors. thanks for joining us this. sanctions threats accusations and protests the political crisis in venezuela. the capital caracas has been gripped by both pro and anti-government demonstrations opposition leader and self-proclaimed interim president addressed his supporters calling on foreign powers to bring down the government. was today the solution is intervention was
. the coup attempt. they tried to fabricate this whole show claiming the military would join them but there is only one answer yes to loyalty and no one to be tree. is a clown a puppet and a criminal after a very tense week opposition supporters are back on the streets to protest against the government of nikko last month europe they called was may but why why go on monday after rejoining an international tour to heat up the already tense climate menace was up in two or three days in a row in a massive blackout the biggest wind of venezuelan history at the moment the whole capital is powerless one of the better that i'm protesting because i want a different government there is no electricity no water no food the government should step down in the world and although i am here to defend the democratic choice of our people when we voted for nicolas maduro as our president under the constitution he is the only president unlike won by dole who chose and proclaimed
himself it is a coup and a violation of our democracy and freedom. while one word all calls for outside help washington is attempting to cripple caracas financially in a bid to oust nicolas maduro the u.s. state department even went so far as to break journalists who didn't agree with the official american stance on venezuela we have noticed in news coverage that some outlets are incorrectly referring to one quite go as the opposition leader or the self-proclaimed president. neither is corrects relying on venezuela's constitution one guy joe became interim president of venezuela on january twenty third millions of americans and more than fifty countries recognize as interim president of venezuela to get this straight you're complaining because. you don't think he made a complaint pointing out just trying to correct well it sounds like
a complaint to me seems pretty weak he's the is the interim president well and we don't want to consider him to be the interim president as you say fifty other countries who recognize him as the interim president but they're all more than a hundred members of the nation so they're fifty countries is not even close that. it's the time to act in support of democracy and that news coverage of all of them the legitimate leader the president is going to inter is more function is to work we don't want to feed into the rhetoric of the current dictator. the pressure was stepped up further on the venezuelan government this week u.s. vice president mike pence announce that seventy seven officials linked the nicolas maduro would have their u.s. visas revoked washington special envoy to venezuela abrams hinted at sanctioning third parties for various supports albany venezuelan leader the u.s.
national security advisor john bolton said there would be new restrictions targeting venezuelan ally cuba adding the whole region should stand against the caracas with more. the united states is exceptional literally that our armed by different rules to you and me of the nations states groups you see they have the right to decide who rules where like in venezuela they decide who is a dictator and who isn't they decide which dictators rule and which don't now and state supports any number of dictators who are only human rights including the leaders of egypt saudi arabia the u.a.e. do you not see that the united states support for other brutal dictators around the world undermines the the credibility of the argument you make no i don't think it does make it separate and i think look in this administration we're not afraid to use the phrase monroe doctrine. it's an odd chaotic
nineteenth century policy that basically says new nation in the americas may be colonized by europeans out of bounds for europeans and everyone not from the americas a little later teddy roosevelt twisted this policy turned it inside out instead of protecting american nations the us now toppled governments it didn't like there now they've twisted it again now they think they can do this everywhere all over the world and a zoo l.-a and a bill that legitimizes us meddling that terry quire threat assessment a strategy to counter russian influence in venezuela. in effect they're trying to justify meddling in venezuela pogany because it's too friendly with russia and
saying no not that then is asked for it not even america's champ there but you don't see broad support for i believe that there is respectful participation of russia in regards to watching the fate of our country but the same goes for other countries that are paying attention here and merica knows better in syria half the world away it's the same story in syria the united states will use diplomacy and work with our partners to expel every last iranian boop and work through the un a process to bring peace and stability to the long suffering syrian people for the life of me i don't remember syrians are asking the united states to get rid of iranians but america knows better africa too many chinese there thinks washington up to no good now is the time to boot them out china uses bribes opaque agreements and the strategic use of debt
to hold states in africa captive to beijing's wishes and demands goes without saying it wasn't the africans who asked for this in fact according to the latest gallup poll most africans approve of chinese investment plans leadership in africa but the united states knows better you know why because it's special exceptional better than you or me officially our mission is to reassert our sovereignty reform the liberal international order this is a unique exceptional country. imagine mr monreal would turn weak from european colonisers what that has been turned into a license. to kill to meddle to topple governments and politically burn the continents oh you've got to be special all right we have all sorts of recent
cases libya syria iraq where u.s. intervention has essentially obliterated any possibility of democracy but this is true throughout the decades that the united states has meddled in the affairs of latin america overthrowing one democratically elected government after another whether in one thousand nine hundred fifty four with our vans or the interventions that it carried out in the one nine hundred eighty s. supporting brutal military regimes in countries like el salvador although venezuela is in the vise the moment cuba nicaragua are also mentioned by figures like bolton in the same breath this is clearly a concerted effort to bring latin american countries once again under the iron control. u.s. backed fighters have resumed their assault against terror group isis last enclave
in syria at the village of by gives near the iraqi border. our troops began an offensive at six pm local time airplanes targeted the terrorists' weapons depos there is fierce fighting on the outskirts of the camp our forces are now ready to finish what is left of eisel off well these are the latest pictures from the embattled city of baghdad where heavy fighting is now raging the final showdown with us always the late as this place families have been fleeing the area among the women and children who have escaped. harvests and some of them refused to believe the caliph it is finished on their own. and the village of a bag has been a focal point of the syrian democratic forces for several weeks now despite all trumped repeatedly liquoring victory over ice all america's top general says the fight is far from over with more here is it up a trunk or. have a look at but who's right there near the border with iraq we didn't really hear
about it in the course of syria's civil war misery now's the time it is really being called the last remaining eyelet of territory in syria. indeed we've seen crowds of escaping civilians and even jihad as who did choose to surrender the current say they want to make sure all innocent people make it out of booze before the guns go off just a short while ago though donald trump was bragging about his army and allies crushing islamic state completely we just took over you know you kept hearing it was ninety percent ninety two percent the caliphate in syria now it's one hundred percent we just took over ever since then however we've kept hearing absolutely different takes from those who are actually responsible for what's happening on the
ground the head of u.s. central command been defeated instead the terrorists after some tactical thinking have chosen to lay low and wait for the right time to make a comeback reduction of the physical caliphate is a monumental military accomplishment but the fight against isis and violent extremism is far from over we have won against isis now we've won and at least for now president trumps proud announcement that the american soldiers were pulling out makes less and less sense the pullout would have definitely scored mr trump some valuable political points but nothing seems to be certain here especially with this but google's thorn in the side you could in that vacuum see a resurgence of isis see a resurgence in our rooms going out we'll come back if we have to anyway whatever happens. next depends on what ignites and this small but vital strip of land
known as booze well as general votel testified in congress recently he said that. yes this is the end of the territorial state which is very important but it is not by any means the end devices there are a lot of fighters that have gone to ground and that have formed we believe that farms sleeper cells which are going to activate in the you know edge at some future date from the later clarified that this is the territorial state and that's why he's reversed his opinion on u.s. troops remaining in syria you know there's a there's one hundred ways to count troops and that may not include a lot of the regular soldiers perhaps national forces you see advisers diplomats and an aid organization so there's likely to be a lot more americans there there's going to still be a lot of isis trouble and we're seeing bomb attacks being carried out in iraq on a weekly basis and there have been isis attacks in northern syria as well so
a isis is far from over and. whatever claims about this the president is making are misleading. and ethiopian airlines plane carrying one hundred forty nine passengers and crew bound for the kenyan capital has crashed shortly after takeoff thirty five different nationalities were on board the pilot have reportedly been given permission to land the plane again after he said he was experiencing difficulties the little cotton was in the air with you know neal. ethiopian airlines is reporting is that the c.e.o. has arrived on the crash site and he confirms personally that there are no survivors and the majority being from kenya canada and the e.u. now this was one of ethiopian airlines regularly scheduled flights although the plane crashed only six minutes after takeoff it took emergency services two whole hours to get to the site now this is especially shocking because reports were
saying that it only crashed about fifty kilometers south of the takeoff zone at the airport one witness even told the b.b.c. that the result of this delay was because the fire was so strong that people were unable to approach the plane on the crash site the office of the ethiopian prime minister already reacted to this on twitter they said that they give their condolences to the families of those who lost their lives on this plane the big question is of course the cole is what happened to it do we have any kind of going to be investigation of course but but early stages of why this happened yet well that's another surprising detail hours later and we still have no details available as to what caused this crash in the first place it's one of the newest model so that's another aspect we have to bring in here it's actually called the boeing seven thirty seven max and it's a new addition to the theo be in fleet only from back in july of last year and a lot of people are drawing parallels to the plane crash that occurred last year in
indonesia with lyon errors model of the same plane the boeing boeing seven thirty seven max and just to give you a couple details about that it was a very similar situation the plane crashed in indonesia only several minutes after taking off and over one hundred eighty passengers were killed now boeing also reacted to that and to this situation back event last year boeing issued a warning year later about this model of aircraft saying that the seven thirty seven max might have a tendency to do a nosedive against the will of the pilot of the plane. and during airplanes actually also responded on twitter to this specific crash saying that the company is aware of the accident and they're closely monitoring the situation. of a six thousand activists gathered in central moscow demanding the protection of internet freedoms that soft gave the initial approval to a bill granting me with ortiz greater control over what sites are accessible within
a question of was that. we came to report on this rally here and central moscow people were gathered to the founder of the freedom of internet in russia but ironically r.t. wasn't one look to the swedes organizers of this event told us that we belong to the media that they do not support so this is the only way i can report on what's happening back there by standing here i can only tell you that you see cons of people over many mostly young people we saw here i came with their flocks they were holding different slogans all condemning the recent bill that was proposed by russian officials the event organized by a group of activists was earlier approved by moscow city hold more news of the week that was coming up including why young british tourists are shunning the united states stay with us your thoughts about the international.
countries are very reluctant to recognize the fact that is that is why i'm like formally and also to make that they were proud strong and. condemning them or siding against and so with glee in the early stages of the war so they're terrified to undermine the reconstruction process by the prolongation of sanctions i think it was in countries with wind as you ation where this is serious reconstructed but in you know ways in which he started by a third power not russia iran not by the west and by the g.c.c.
. much of the program south africa's drive has hit a hurdle off to the remarks when i said true freedom will only come when the want population is subservient to the black. i don't want blacks to work for whites and i want you to work for yourselves and white people will work for you that will be true freedom you must teach them how to carry babies on their back but for white people to be our domestic workers julius malema is the leader of the economic freedom fighters a far left party which is currently the third largest political force in south africa over the years man has stirred national debate with his views on race and
class he's twice been convicted of hate speech and inciting violence against white people he was expelled from the governing a.n.c. party in two thousand and twelve for sowing division within the organization. now the apartheid policy in south africa ended more than two decades ago the country though is still struggling with racism what people make up nine percent of south africa's population but own more than seventy percent of private farmland efforts to reclaim much of that land without compensation have already been launched by the government but both the problem and efforts to solve it are causing animosity across the board. the general ideology of julius malema in he he likes to try and create this sort of clash between races in south africa in order to gain political points he just want to replace white people in a position of oppression we don't wonder you want to obliterate you want to end
completely this system which is constructed to do white people on top and placing them exploiting black people the government gives them opportunities through the black economic empowerment it gives them opportunities it incentivizes businesses to hire them in higher positions it is easier for them to enter into higher education into universities the system in south africa is not a white supremacist system it is not a white dominated system so definitely so why do you mean a good country thirty five thousand white families only eighty percent of the land we don't own i speak to you as a black person in south africa i owed nothing i am in fact i think that tenant white people always think everything the government is a black majority government this is a simple fact you cannot deny that majority of parliament members are black and this is the white. thinking it is true what i meant is is black but we can't even
make laws that says you must take the learnt even these politicians controlled by money who has money why it's when you ask the majority of white people they will agree that the old government and its systems were corrupt and unfair to everyone in south africa and they did benefit. people unfairly that is true why people are somehow deny a list of all the crimes of the old government is incorrect. for young people in the u.k. taking a trip across the pond is becoming less of an attraction with many blaming donald trump for making the united states uncool party worker decided to find out more. that transatlantic road trip they used to be most students dream holiday things like route sixty six or recreating the journeys of the beatniks from old the road or feminist fugitives like bella and louis s. but according to the u.k.'s biggest youth travel operator the kids of today no
longer consider the us a cool destination backpacking trips and holidays over to america are down twenty three percent from the start of the year and the travel operators are blaming it on something called the trump slump they say that socially conscious millennial is an generation's ias a shining america because their perch off by none other than the president himself would you shun would you show on a trip to the u.s. because of trouble yeah i can understand why people boycott and make so would you very sure record holiday would it be kind of top of your list of where you want to go not the top from a line on him i don't know she's never really appealed to me and especially with all the poses going on and so it's not like there's a no you prefer to go some are more. culturally appropriate. would you want to go to america or just donald trump but you are not personally so you're not bothered i'll go america which you. do you go to church you have the opportunity to go to
america you still go you know like i wouldn't care but don't try to i don't like whitney was maybe i'd like to have me and but i think i think that for a hood it is very different going over there to live a life actually migration and everything and suddenly going to choose to live i think with everything going on it's just quite intense and i think i want to but then again you know the whole thing is like parts and stuff so you know it's not a great a very that's a bastion of hard over here to say. you're not coming to the u.k. because of political situations so i don't know really should have an income. some people choosing to hold the scenary should say it's still still travel. i don't know about in denver colorado or where we're from but i can tell you i don't like don't talk very much if you aren't from the us would you go to the us on holiday probably not really why don't. i probably just want to stay here where
where i know what's going on where there's no chaos whatsoever and it's still very very calm on advertising if. you don't come to america and there's the headlines for this often the team has things that ought international back in thirty minutes with the latest global news updates. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy to confront a shouldn't let it be an arms race in. spearing dramatic development only really i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. there was no to trade or labor there's an environment standouts in the original
nafta up to the five years ago those were kicked out because relations were more punitive but now the illusion is very very close intertwined so i think it's ok to have a new treaty and you negotiation. desists is a stick from the water bottle phone in the stomach of a fish the brand is part of the coca-cola company which sells millions of bottles of soda every day the idea was that let's tell consumers there are the bad ones there the litter bugs are throwing this away industry should be blamed for all this waste the company has long promised to reuse the plastic. that's. their plastic. special projects funding me. on i'm your best bet is the end of it for the team but for now the mountains of
waste only grow while. the country has gone into a nihilistic fever that's why i think they've got to hit the road and get the child with the fine what makes america take the shuttle it's the genius of. this is it we point around which hollywood is going to say we're starting last with this is we're going to head into the swamp we're going into the belly of the beast i think i'm gonna leave now don't forget the more gonzo business you may be completely different in the mystery. this is florida man country florida man is famous world famous because anytime like the freakiest of the freaky happens in america you can count on it being florida man florida man the lead on a news story is that it could be colorado man or new york man
a california man but usually if it's a freaky story of stars a florida man florida man jumps into a pool of alligators jumps back in that happened just today so we were googling this florida man and we're heading to st augustine and there is florida man jumps into pool of alligators at alligator park in st augustine trying to speculate why that is i mean california they say is full of crazy people because they all end up rolling into california and the girl across the country and then they stop and go for you but with florida remember it is midnight cowboy they are headed to florida like i was the promised land it's sunny all the time and it's got some appeal. somehow to crazy person in the country we are so it neatly as americans and barest about florida that we said that is plymouth rock back the
